Australian Home Technology: Entertaining, to say the least

The text promises great ideas and better photos; mom’s legs promise something else.

Photoshop Disasters

For all the disasters we get from publications that can get away with a lower standard from their Photoshop department, first-world magazines that underline “technology” with a meaty disaster boggle the mind. At the very least, the red text at the bottom of this cover suggests something “entertaining” – at least they followed up on that one.

Thanks Richard.

    “Mom’s legs” are crossed at the ankles. I see nothing wrong with this. Do you think the leg that’s bent at the knee is hers and the other one is really thick? The bent leg is “Dad’s”. Both of Mom’s legs are straight and crossed at the ankles.

    Her legs are the correct length. Track up the outside seam of her jeans and you will see the rivet where her front pocket begins. What looks like extra leg length is actually her blue-jeaned hips. It only seems like her legs are unnaturally long because the man’s knee is blocking our view of her waistband–the telling visual clue as to her anatomy.

      Nope. Look at the waist to shoulder length. It should be similar to the waist to knee length. It’s not.

        Sorry, but you are wrong and Mary Kay is right. There is no problem with this photo, unless you think Mom’s torso is shorter than her upper arm…

        • Henry

          No, sorry Chris. You and Mary are unfortunately wrong as her torso length is around 30% shorter than her waist-to-thigh length. Have a look at yourself as an example and you’ll see. You’re welcome. :)

    Not a PSD.

      Yes, it is. Take a look at the waist to shoulder length. It should be similar to the waist to knee length. It’s clearly not.

    The real disaster here is the kerning on the word “ENTERTAINING” at the bottom. Look at the space between the first I and the N and then compare it to the space between that N and the I after it and the N after it.

      *letterspacing*

      Typographically, it’s rather restrained and clean.

      • Rrhain

        Kerning is letterspacing. If you want to get technical, I’m more referring to tracking. The spaces between the letters is not uniform and is quite ugly. The space between the first I and the N that follows is practically non-existent. They did the right thing by moving the T and A closer together, but look at the space between the first E and the N and then between that same N and the T that follows. It’s not the same. The space between the N and the T is the same as that between that same T and the E that follows, but it’s a wider gap between that E and the following R.
        It’s horrid.

    The kids are adorable!

    To me, its the gentleman’s leg. The placement of his hand on his leg, and the shadows of the hand are strange.

    Looking at that I begin to notice that the location where his hip would naturally start is where his rear ends.

    His leg is all sorts of queer looking, as if he was too tall in the original photo to fit on the cover.

  • Stella

    Look at the kids — The boy’s foot looks like it belongs to someone else, most of his fingertips are missing, and his hair is too long. The girl’s teeth have big gaps between them, her collar is crooked, and she has a man’s leg growing out of her head. Of course, none of these is a PsD (and neither are the mom’s legs in my opinion).

  • Andulamb

    Nothing wrong with this. I know some of you think there is, but there isn’t.

  • Artiarturro

    All correct here, not a PSD.

    It’s an honest cover: I find it very entertaining to imagine what it would look like if Mom stood up and tried to walk with those elongated thigh bones and distant knees.
